ABOUT THE BOOK
Kanye West would probably not be considered as a candidate if one were to discuss the best lyricists or storytellers in hip-hop. However, when naming the best entertainers in the genre, West just may be at the top of the list. Kanye is arguably one of the most creative and innovative rappers to exist. And, in actuality, his lyrics are beginning to catch up.
Mr. West takes chances in his music that not many other emcees would dare touch. He does not stick to any formula. Each album that he has released is completely different from not only the previous one, but from everything being played in the rap world at that time. Deliberately different and constantly re-inventing himself, Kanye always provides listeners with a new sound.
His background as a producer for artists such as Jay-Z is apparent in his own music; as that aspect of his records is nearly flawless. Once “Yeezy” mastered the sound boards and took a shot at the mic, it was evident that he had skills. It is a rare breed that can be equally successful both behind the scenes and in the spotlight. And this is what makes Kanye special.
In addition to his musical talents, West is also infamous for a number of other things: interrupting acceptance speeches at awards shows, demonstrating a nauseating cockiness, and being somewhat of a fashionista, to name a few additional of West’s penchants. Regardless, none of these things take away from or add to his music. That can stand on its own.
Kanye Omari West may not have been in the rap game for as long as most of the greats, but his impact has been just as tremendous. He bridged a gap between genres; developing tracks that are hard enough for hip-hop, but still rhythmic enough for pop.
